Starry-Eyed: 16 Stories that Steal the Spotlight
edited by Ted Michael & Josh Pultz
In most anthologies, there are always one or two stories that don't quite work, but Starry-Eyed is the exception. All the stories are stellar, written by young adult authors who really know their stuff. Each story is filled with so much truth and honesty that I felt they deserved to be included in a nonfiction book blog. Personal anecdotes from Ian Harding, Greta Gerwig, Lea Salonga and others help readers see the power of believing in themselves.
Even if you don't aspire to a life on the stage, you'll really enjoy this book. Highly recommended.
